CHOCOLATE OATMEAL COOKIES
Carl Ijames

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1/4 cup cocoa
  • 1 stick butter

Instructions: Heat over medium heat while stirring until boiling. Let boil for 5 minutes, then remove from heat.

Stir in:

  • 3 cups oatmeal
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter (optional)

Drop by heaping teaspoonfuls onto wax paper and let cool (or start eating - they are good hot too). You have about 3 to 4 minutes after removing from heat to get the oatmeal stirred in and the cookies dropped out. After that, enjoy licking the pan and your fingers. I experimented with less milk (1/3 to 1/4 cup) and boiling for 1 to 3 minutes, and sometimes the cookies came out with a better texture (moister and softer), but sometimes they never set up at all and we ate them with a spoon. This way they are a little dry after storing a couple of days, so I just make sure they get eaten sooner. (Back to Menu)

DEATH BY CHOCOLATE
Janis Wallace

Ingredients:

  • 1 brownie mix
  • 1/2 c Kahlua
  • 1 pkg chocolate pudding (DO NOT USE INSTANT PUDDING) (use the large size, the package that requires 3 cups of milk)
  • 1 12-oz. container of Cool Whip
  • 2 Heath Bars, chopped (or one bag of already chopped Heath Bar pieces)
  • Chopped Walnuts

Instructions: Prepare brownie mix using the receipt for "cake-like" brownies. While still warm and in the baking pan, poke brownies with a fork. Pour all of the Kahlua over the baked brownies.

Prepare chocolate pudding according to instructions and refrigerate until slightly set. Use half of the pan of brownies and line the bottom of the bowl. (do not crumble them, but try to get pieces as large as possible). Press lightly up the sides of the bowl.

Cover with half of the prepared chocolate pudding; then half of the container of Cool Whip. Sprinkle with 1 chopped Heath Bar (or half of the package). Repeat layers with remaining ingredients. Top with the Chopped walnuts. Refrigerate. (Back to Menu)

DEATH BY CHOCOLATE I
Buffy Hyler

Ingredients:

  • 2 c. flour
  • 1 tbsp. double-acting baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 2 c. sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 stick unsalted butter at room temperature, quartered
  • 1 c. sour cream
  • 1/2 c. water
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/2 c. plus 2 tbsp. cocoa
  • 1 12-oz package semisweet chocolate chips
  • powdered sugar

Instructions:

Sift flour, baking powder, and baking soda twice. Place in a small bowl. Beat the sugar and eggs in a large mixing bowl until sugar is dissolved. Add butter and mix into egg mixture thoroughly. Add sour cream, water, vanilla extract, and beat. Add flour mixture and cocoa and beat slowly just until flour is absorbed. Do not overbeat.

Fold in chocolate chips and pour into buttered Bundt pan. Bake at 350 degrees F for 1 hour. When cool, sift powdered sufar on top.

Variation: Replace 1/4 c. of the water with Grand Marnier. (Back to Menu)

DEATH BY CHOCOLATE II
Buffy Hyler

Ingredients:

  • 1 box chocolate cake mix
  • 1 box instant chocolate pudding (4 serving size (1/2 cup per serving))
  • 1/4 cup oil
  • 1/4 cup water (I sometimes substitute Grand Marnier here)
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 4 eggs
  • 12 oz chocolate, semi sweet chips

Instructions:

Mix ingredients, in order. Pour into greased Bundt pan. Cook at 350 for 55 minutes. Cool 15 minutes and remove from pan. Believe me, frosting is not necessary with this cake. It's from Dom DeLuise's cookbook and is called Death by Chocolate II. (Death by Chocolate I is completely from scratch)

Additional Notes (mine, not Dom D's):

1) This stuff is *very* thick. I skipped the mixers and just used a spoon to mix for about 3-4 minutes until there was no more visible dry ingredients.

2) You might want to up the 1/4 cup oil to 1/2 cup oil. I did this and had a significantly moister but still dense cake.

3) This cake will most likely vary by the type of chocolate cake mix bought. My best results to date were by using the chocolate "pudding in the box" cake mix combined with 1/2 cup oil. (Back to Menu)

EASY CHOCOLATE ECLAIR DESSERT

Instructions:

Line 9 x 13 pan with whole graham crackers (bottom only). Mix the instant pudding using the 3 cups of milk. Fold in the Cool Whip. Alternate layers of whole graham crackers with the pudding mixture (crackers, pudding, crackers, pudding, and final layer is crackers).
